## creating a percentage for time

Hey everyone, I am needing to find the amount of time a network is online per month. I have the total minutes each network is online per month.

how can I go about doing this?

You can use the DATEDIFF function with MINUTE as the interval to calculate the total minutes between two dates.

If you have a date dimension I would use that as the basis, and try a measure such as this:

``````% Time Online =
VAR __TimeOnline = [TimeOnlineMeasure]
VAR __MinDate = MIN( Dates[Date] )
VAR __MaxDate = MAX( Dates[Date] )
VAR __TotalMinutes =
DATEDIFF( __MinDate, __MaxDate, MINUTE )
RETURN
DIVIDE( __TimeOnline ,  __TotalMinutes )``````

TimeOnlineMeasure is the placeholder for the calculation that gives you the total minutes the network was online.
